A Businessly Casual LBD

Saturday, October 30, 2010
First, thank you to my +2,000 Google followers!!!!!!! You may have noticed that I begged you guys on my Facebook and Twitter for someone to be my lucky 2,000th...and Kinsey saved the day. This is me doing a little dance. Not really. But it kind of looks like it.

This is the other belt I got from Fay. I love that it's wide. I don't have a lot of wide belts so it's a nice change from all the skinny belts I usually get. It's hard to see but this belt is gray with pink sequins. YES, more sequins. I'm obsessed.. I had a hard time figuring out what shoes to wear but I settled on gold heels to accentuate my hot legs and make them look longer.

  21. Cute outfit! Black is so 'your color'!
    Out of cuiosity, are you doing something different with your photos? They seem to be grainy and out of focus...just an observation. Really, I don't mean to be mean or anything I was just wondering. Hope I don't offend.
